This place needs a re-vamp -- big time! The atmosphere is old & dark & kinda dirty-feeling. The food is OK, but nothing to write home about. Breakfast consists of whatever you order & lots & lots & lots of hash browns. Too many nice...More

The food here is great. And the place has a small town homey feel with friendly waitresses. And smiling faces. And the ranch dressing is amazing :-)

Decent breakfast with good portions. Nothing spectacular but serves breakfast all day. Good service. Accommodated a large group for us. Caution - NO CREDIT CARDS!

If you like hash browns, you will get filled at Main Street. Eggs Benedict is a favorite as is the Biscuits and Gravy! Coffee cup never goes empty. Quick friendly service from an experienced wait staff. Bring your checkbook or cash.
